  • Ask the children why they think Bob is sad about moving house. What happens to make him happy again? Link your discussions to the children’s experiences of moving house, or of friends or family members moving away from them. Talk positively about making new friends and keeping in touch with old ones.
  • Focus on Bob’s attempt to run away. Explore the illustrations depicting his fear as he scampers downstairs, hears the heavy door shut and runs to meet Fleabag. Ask the children if they have ever felt scared? Talk about the dangers of Bob’s actions and how Fleabag protected him.
